Monaco and Man City set for second leg thriller

Monaco and Man City set for second leg thriller

It's also another victory for Portuguese Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim, who has performed remarkably in tricky circumstances.

Gabrilel Boschilia and Guido Carrillo remain the only other absentees through injury.

Willy Caballero meanwhile is expected to take over from Claudio Bravo between the sticks for what could be another goal fest.

"It would be a huge mistake, a huge mistake to think about what we have done and not think about what we have to do". However, I am more than sure that Monaco will run ahead, after all, it is necessary to recoup at any cost, but City will wait on the counterattack.

And like Deschamps, who on that famous night warned his players they would concede "one goal and perhaps the first of the match", Jardim wants his team to stick to the game plan should a similar scenario arise.

"They will try to attack and score goals".

Jemerson returned in place of the suspended Kamil Glik in defence, while Guardiola, who took charge of his 100th game in Europe, made two changes with Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov given the nod ahead of Nicolas Otamendi and Yaya Toure.

Manchester City have never lost to French opposition in European competition (W2 D2). In that game, Guardiola named his new signing Gabriel Jesus on the substitute bench.

Eventually, with City 20 minutes from going out, the dam broke.

Guardiola said: "Taking the ball and attacking as much as possible is the only way I know to beat this type of team".

With a 5-3 lead entering this one, City went with an attacking lineup that missed close chances and lacked precise passing to do damage, as a late goal from Monaco turned the tide. "I think we can reach the final, but of course the other teams will think the same and that doesn't make it easier", the Belgium global told UEFA.com "It will be very tough against Monaco, they're doing extremely well at the moment, but we are very positive and if we beat them we are through to the quarter-finals".

Six minutes later, though, a Tiemoue Bakayoko header gave Monaco the advantage again, delivering the final punch to City and ensuring Leicester City would be the only Premier League team remaining in the competition.
